Re: Any secure anonymous linux distros based on Whonix

Sorry, my last reply was to slajoh01. I missed yours, CaptainZero.

I agree completely. The links you posted are from TOR bug track. Certainly those issues are relevant to anonymity but I saw no mention of adding browser plugins to the mix.
That is totally right. I wrote that to make clear that the "don't use it because pseudonymous, not anonymous" argument is weak one against Flash. It's one reason against Flash but not a sufficient reason. TBB is also rather pseudonymous than anonymous. (open bugs, more fingerprinting bugs such as desktop resolution, zoom...)

Did I miss something. Elsewhere the TOR documentation recommends against browser plugins and extensions other than those included in the bundle (HTTPS Everywhere, No Script and TOR Button).
Correct.

quote:
None of that applies to me and I will not be adding browser plugins as they add a layer of risk that I am not comfortable with.
Yes, the added security risk is a strong argument against Flash.
